My Life
My Life
By Golda Meir
Putnam, 1975, 480 pp.

Stage by enthusiastic stage, this large-scale autobiography carries Mrs. Meir from girlhood in Russia through the years in America, the struggle for an independent Israel and its formative years, to the ordeal of the Yom Kippur War and its aftermath. She reveals here her deep regret over not having put aside the conclusions of her military experts and called up the reserves in time to meet the Arab attack of October 6, 1973.
